The Robby Rabbitry Farm Part 1Sunday, March 31, 2013
Happy Easter Sunday Pretties! Hope all is well as we celebrated Easter Sunday. (^_^)
And since today is Easter Sunday, Easter Bunnies/Rabbits are all over places. Do you know that The Easter Bunny or Easter Rabbitis a character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs? The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holiday. It was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Frankenau's De ovis paschalibus (About Easter Eggs) in 1682 referring to an Alsace tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter Eggs. Yay! They’re such a great cutie and huggable creatures!
As we talk about rabbits, let me share with you dearies my experience on visiting the The Robby Rabbitry / MoCa Farm last February 24, which is located at Brgy. Castillo, Padre Garcia, Batangas City, Philippines. My sister Ai and I together with co-TRTs visited the Robby Rabbitry Farm. It was planned, I think, 2 weeks before, so the excitement especially to my lil’sis was visible. It was like having an excursion/educational field trip on one of the farms located here in our country - the best part of that was I’m with my sister who was genuinely happy on what she have seen - and just two hours away from the Metro. I have so many stories to tell since we’ve visited different farms within the area, that’s why I decided to divide them part by part. And this blog post is the Part 1 which I will be talking about the rabbits. Cutie. Adorable. Fluffy. Rabbits.
As we reached the place, the farm greeted us with these refreshing and healthy drinks that were harvested from the backyard… what I meant is… farm. *wink*
As per Ms. Gigi, since her husband will be working on the other country for 2 years they have to stay in Philippines together with her 2 kids. But life could be boring then if she has nothing to do aside from taking care of their children. By then, they decided to buy a property in Batangas on which after several months they have decided to transform into farm. Since the family loves Rabbits as their pet, they’ve decided to come up with a Rabbitry Farm. At first, it was a 100% family pleasure that soon had been converted to family business and that’s the start of farming rabbits – The Robby Rabbitry Farm. Yes, they do have different breeds of rabbits that afterwards, after several months of culturing and nurturing, it’ll be turns out to a rabbit meat which will be exported. Dearies, it tasted good (yep, we also had a chance to eat rabbit meat, will be posting it on my part 2).
Meanwhile, as we go along on our journey, we met these cuties. Oh, they’re so fluffy!
My Lil’sis Ai and me with the fluffy rabbits!
Wondering where they got their looks? Oh, from this cute little patootie Robby. He’s so sweet and caring. See? He’s very careful with his pets and hugs them once in a while to feel his love. Sweet indeed!
That’s it for now. I’ll be posting in a few days for my part 2, so watch out for it! Hopefully, the schools of today will include The Robby Rabbitry Farm on their bucket list of places to visit every Field Trip so students will be educated how fun farming is. Plus, an inspiration will be with you as you go home.
For the meantime, you can visit their website (click here) for more information and like them on Facebook (click here) for updates.
Happy Easter Sunday! Hope you’ll catch all the Easter Eggs of Easter Rabbits. (“ ,)
